See “real” commit date in github (hour/day)

Is there a way to see the date of a commit in github, with day/hour precision? Older commits appear in a “human readable” format, such as “2 years ago” instead of showing the actual date.

  • Git won't let me rebase (untracked files would be overwritten). What should I do?
  • Get the commits made by specific authors (more than one)
  • If it’s not possible to see the actual date on github, is there a easier workaround than git clone?

    Hover over the 2 years ago and you’ll get the timestamp.

    The real date does not appear for me upon hovering “2 years ago”, despite the text being wrapped by a <time> element with an iso value under its datetime attribute.

    If all else fails, like it did for me, try inspecting the text.

    Sample element:

    <time datetime="2015-01-22T20:48:13Z" is="relative-time" title="Jan 22, 2015, 2:48 PM CST">7 days ago</time>

    you can just use this js bookmark:

    javascript:(function() { 
            var relativeTimeElements = window.document.querySelectorAll("relative time");
            timeElement.innerHTML = timeElement.innerHTML +" -- "+ timeElement.title;

    It adds just the correct time:
